It's the fundamentally transformed America that you and Obama wanted so badly.

Cheap thrills only go so far though. Reality inevitably always sets in eventually.

I give it another year.

What a genius.
U heard hum make a speech defending Rice about Benghazi saying she shouldn't be criticized because she's with the UN and was just delivering the message. Well genius, the message was WRONG and you sent her out there to give it. Then Obama had the gall to say they besmirched Rices reputation. After all his lies not just the past 4 years but in his autobiographies too.

No wonder his ears are so big, its to hold in all the gall and ego.

<quoted text> That 4% would sure hire a lot of people. Instead it is/will cause layoffs and a move to under 28 hour employment. The revenue will decrease not increase. Same with minimum wage. you libtards raised it twice putting a lot of poor people out of work. Thus starting the downward spiral. You libtards like to pass the feel good bullshit but never take the credit for the unintended consequences.
How will raising the rate on the wealthy push to a 28 hour work week?

And really, you bitch & moan about people not making enough money to pay income tax while complaining the minimum wage is too high.

Both parents of a family of four working full time minimum wage jobs don't make enough to pay federal income tax.

You idiots think giving the CEO of Sears a tax cut makes him hire more people.

The fact is that raising the rate on the wealthy will not harm the economy but instead help reduce our deficit.

I know it is difficult for you right whiners but the wealthy did great under Clinton.

We are talking about personal income taxes. It would affect less than 4% of small businesses.

Now, flacktard, handing money to businesses will NOT make them hire a single worker. NONE.

Increasing demand does.

Some people will even blackmail Elmo for money. O'Reilly knows all about that. Fortunately, he was willing to lose everything before being taken to the cleaners by another gold digger. He won that fight. Elmo will too.

I believe there was a 3-4 trillion dollar debt reduction plan with 1.6 trillion in revenue increases.

That should have been a logical follow-up question by the press. If Bush or Romney had been behind that podium, they would have gotten beaten down before getting away with that kind of answer.

It's precisely because she WAS sent out with the wrong information and Obama told her to do it!

Crime in royal Italy! We're so screwed.

And I am so sick and tired of this president always being "offended" by any criticism of his administration.

Could he possibly be MORE narcissistic?

Fox Tries To Prevent Susan Rice Nomination With Libya Smears

Fox News is trying to disqualify Susan Rice, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, from being nominated as the next secretary of state by alleging that she made inaccurate statements about the attack on the U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. But during her Sunday show appearances, Rice was accurately conveying the consensus of the intelligence community at the time, and there is evidence that the anti-Islam video she referenced did, in fact, play a role in motivating the attack.

The dooms day rhetoric is becoming a real bore. Do you assume that the majority of Americans are wrong and you are right? That the majority of us WANT another rich man that has only any real interest in the wealthy? That the majority of us want another cowboy type holding the reins of the most powerful country? Dictating terms to other nations and trying to monopolize their resources?The age of empires are over.

We are emerging into a different era,one that Republicans and conservatives,and rightest minded people are just not ready to accept. But guess what? You/they are in the minority AT LAST!! America is waking up and the world is appreciating it.

Jindal:‘Absolutely reject’ Romney’s explanation of loss

In a conference call with donors Wednesday, Romney said Obama won votes by offering enticing “gifts” to key Democratic voting groups like blacks, Hispanics, and the young. Subsidized health care, cheaper student loans, free contraceptives — those were all things Romney said Obama gave those constituencies in order to win support at the polls.“In each case, they were very generous in what they gave to those groups,” Romney told his donors.

Asked about Romney’s comments at a meeting of the Republican Governors Association at the Encore Hotel here in Las Vegas, Jindal did not hold back.“That is absolutely wrong,” Jindal said.“Two points on that. One, we have got to stop dividing American voters. We need to go after 100 percent of the votes, not 53 percent — we need to go after every single vote. And second, we need to continue to show that our policies help every voter out there achieve the American dream, which is to be in the middle class, which is to be able to give their children the opportunity to get a great education, which is for their children to have even better-paying jobs than their parents.”

“So I absolutely reject that notion, that description,” Jindal continued. I think it’s absolutely wrong. I don’t think that represents where we are as a party and where we’re going as a party. And that has got to be one of the most fundamental takeaways from this election. If we’re going to continue to be a competitive party and win elections on the national stage and continue to fight for our conservative principles, we need two messages to get out loudly and clearly. One, we are fighting for 100 percent of the votes, and secondly, our policies benefit every American who wants to pursue the American dream, period. No exceptions.”
